Yay! We have cover art for the podcast!
This is the art work you will see displayed alongside the Books & More with Lenore podcast once it is listed on iTunes and Libsyn (the podcast hosting site).
I think I am still a solid four to five weeks out from making my podcast available on iTunes (I need to have three to six episodes recorded and produced--also I would like to have a long line up of weekly interviews scheduled to make sure I can stay on track with weekly or bi-weekly podcasts).
That said, I want you be able to join the fun early! It looks like I will have episode 1 ready to go by about April 16th. If you want to be amongst the first to hear the show, simply sign-up for my e-news and I will release each episode to you immediately after it is produced.
Recording begins next week. You won't want to miss my conversation with Diane Gallagher, who will discuss her fabulous Italian travels and her latest book, The Bastard of Saint Genevra.
Want to be on the show? Applications now open.
Is there a book or piece of writing that changed your life?
Poetry - novel - blog post - memoir - travel writing...it all counts!
What resonated with you? How did it impact your life? Do you wish you could share what you've learned with friends or clients who face similar challenges, cross roads, or life transitions?
If you answered yes, I would love to speak with you! I am looking for folks (location not an issue but you must have access to Skype) to share their game changer book/writing with me and then talk about it.
Get in touch!
I can't wait to hear from you,
I am now rolling down the runway toward podcast creation!
I'd love to tell you that my rolling is fuelled by massive, un-quashable self confidence, but, like the birthing of most creative projects it's more like rolling hills--the cliche ups and downs.
Here's what the week's looked/felt like for me:
Excitement and optimism: Hooray, my equipment arrived - look how pretty it is - I think I'm in love...with a microphone...
Reality check: Oh shit, now I have to learn to use GarageBand (thank you Eric Trimmer for your excellent Youtube tutorial, you're a podcast saver...)
Elation: Yippee I have a real live actual guest lined up...
Scary voices: Are you sure you know how to do this? You'd better prepare by reading 'how to interview like a pro' blog posts until your eyes bleed...
Lastly: Whatever. This is supposed to be fun and it will be what it will be (patting myself on the back, good job sweetie, you beat the negative self talk--time to binge watch Friends)
Moving through all the stages to make the project fly is part of the creative process--it's that combination of excitement and and discomfort that makes our souls expand. And that's what it's all about. Learning, growing, going beyond where we currently sit comfortably, and getting to the heart of being more of who we are at our core.
